Specify a filename as an exclusion in Immediate Recovery

I've recently noticed that whenever I attach a picture from the My Documents/My Pictures folder, to an email message, the sandboxed Thunderbird puts a 'thumbs.db' Windows thumbnail file in the sandboxed My Documents/My Pictures/... folder. Even though I have Immediate Recovery turned-on, and the My ...

After you get the error message, have you tried to delete the sandbox folder using Windows Explorer - and does it delete then? If you can't delete it with Explorer, see if you can find out what program may have a lock on a file in the sandbox. Unlocker , which is used from the right-click menu in Wi...

You will find different opinions on that. Personally, I use an A/V program along with Sandboxie, and I wouldn't do without it. What I have given up on is on-demand spyware scanners. I used to use Ad-Aware and SpyBot Search and Destroy to occasionally scan my hard drive. I don't have them installed, ...

What should I do about this? You can increase the "File Migration" setting for the sandbox: Dbl-click the Sandboxie tray icon, right-click the sandbox and choose Sandbox Settings. Then click "File Migration". Change the file size that prompts the message, from 32768 to something larger. I think tha...

Since Pop Peeper wants to insert itself into the computer's keyboard input, in order to light the Scroll Lock light, I don't see how you can allow that by a sandboxed program. Even configuring Sandboxie to permit programs running in that sandbox to manufacture fake keyboard inputs doesn't work. I su...

The other thing that I haven't addressed is e-mail. When I click on an e-mail link on a WEB page it won't allow it because I haven't configured my e-mail client yet. If you are getting a message "SBIE2212 Email reader 'xxx' is not configured to run sandboxed" (and especially if it's Thunderbird), r...

Maybe it's platform dependent, as you say. (I'm using XP and Firefox) If there's a link in the window of one of my tabs, that I want to open in another (existing) tab, I can drag and drop that link onto the other tab, to open the link there. I can drag and drop a link from the address bar onto any o...

It should be easy enough to add this yourself.

You do need to know the executable filename f...

I'm just trying out a program that shows what programs are using local or remote ports. System Explorer is probably just one of the programs that can show port numbers. Maybe you are using one, too.

My "Find Updates" button is now greyed-out again, when Firefox is sandboxed (in all 3 profiles). It's not a great loss for me, since I always install or update extensions when unsandboxed. I do though, use the 'Find Updates' button to check for updates while sandboxed. If I give Direct Access to the...

You can set each sandbox (like DefaultBox) to automatically delete the files after all programs using that sandbox end, or you can do it manually by right-clicking the Sandboxie tray icon and select a sandbox - then choose "Delete Contents".

This thread sounds a lot like a problem I had with the "Find Updates" button being greyed-out when Firefox was running sandboxed. It was happening with all 3 of my Firefox profiles. Don't look for a solution from me, though. I reverted from 3.26 to each of the 3.25.x versions that I had saved, and i...
